Sadie Hawkins Day String Band

Sadie Hawkins Day is a folk music foursome out of St. Louis, MO. Drawing on a shared love of traditional music we bring our unique twist of old time, bluegrass, blues and folk to audiences. We believe music should be fun and we want our listeners to have a toe-tappin good time.

Sadie Hawkins Day consists of sisters Anne and Colleen Williamson, musician about town Dave Black, and Dan Higgins. Colleen is an award winning hammered dulcimer player and when she is in a honky tonk kind of mood will add dobro into the mix. The sisters played in local country group The Lulus and love to sing songs by Loretta Lynn, Emmylou Harris and other great female artists. Dave Black is one of the most prominent St.Louis musicians on the scene. While guitar is his main axe of choice he also plays mandolin and wows audiences with his musicality and ability. He is a veteran of the St. Louis music scene and his name is known not only in the city but nationally as well. Banjo player, Dan Higgins, brings the old time twang of claw hammer banjo and beautiful harmony singing to the group. Playing music since 1968 he has played a variety of instruments in groups such as the Wild Peccary and Tapir Club, Impromptu Pants, The Bloated Plovers, The Hot Baloney Boys, Smuggler's Cargo, and The Raw Earth Experience.

Songs of heartbreak, rough living, good times, and good people all find a home in our repertoire.
